We return with the fifth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom! In our second take on this movie, we decide whether to let nature take its course or save the dinosaurs, I wonder if Hollywood isn’t just an island, and Mom remembers my toy dinos fondly. Bryce Dallas Howard’s running on heels is scrutinized, Mom steals my jokes and we briefly mention the chapter on The Silence of the Lambs in my bachelor’s thesis because Ted Levine plays a dinosaur dentist in this one. We discuss the difference between fighting wars and fighting off an invasion and somehow drag in WWII and the actions of ICE under Trump. We plan Mom’s Hollywood career as an actress/screenwriter, she recalls a television interview with a Dutch author, and debate the importance of using language that doesn’t have a history of oppression attached to it.
